The award for best performance by a disc golf hole in 2019 goes to Hole 10 at Codorus State Park - Red CSR, during the 2019 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships- Powered by Prodigy.

That hole was a monster this year, especially on the windy days.

I agree with your theory in general, the greater scoring separation on a hole is really what makes it interesting. The worst kinds of holes I play are usually short par 3 dog legs with mandos or trees that make it nearly impossible to get a birdie. If you play them well you get a 3, if you play mediocre you get 3, if you play kinda bad you get a 3. If you play really bad you get a 4, or maybe a 5.

By this metric the best performing hole at USWDGC was the shortest hole used in the event.

On this site that Codorus hole has lengths from the 200's to over 900- any idea which iteration it was?

Lake Eureka 18 was the "best performer" at Ledgestone but Hole 2 on the same layout was the" best performer" at Worlds.

Yep, just like different players can win different events on the same course, different holes can have the best performance during different events.

What is the mean and s.d. of hole performances? Would we be able to say that an "average 18-hole course" would be expected to have 3 holes in the bottom 17% of holes (<1 sd), 12 holes in the middle 66% and 3 holes in the top 17% (>1 sd). In addition, would courses with no holes in the lower 17% of performance be considered overall "better" for sorting skills in competition or is a higher 18-hole performance average score more important?

The average rating was 894, and many players were FP40. Maybe 228 feet is just the right size. The longer holes didn't give out many birdies.

I don't think those are valid questions. You can't figure out which is the best football team by looking at individual player stats.

If I were to compare performances of courses as a whole, I would look directly at scoring spread width of total scores for the two courses with the same set of players.

It was also possibly the tightest hole used in the event and is a bit downhill.

I was shooting for par playing roughly 940 so the lack of birdies across the field on some holes doesn't surprise me all that much.
